I'm sure I've come across this pottery before, but can't for the life of me place it.
Suggestions welcome.

If it's Italian and that color blue there's a really good chance it's Bitossi. That's where I would start my search.

Yes, Bitossi was my first thought too, and I have a few of their pieces, but as far as I know they use clay with a lot of grog in it, where as this is a smooth creamy-white ground.

This piece doesn't look like Bitossi to me, the clay and the colours are completely different.

Found another one.
You're right, Rita, not Bitossi.

Though I once had a big Bitossi cat, that looked just like that, Flat face,
head sideways, elongated body, pointy legs, coincidence?

No, I don't think it's a coincidence, but I asked on the Bitossi group on Facebook and Guido Bitossi said it's not one of theirs. So a copyist, maybe.
